Journey to Season 3
Passports ready, we are going back to Piffling and their customs official is VERY occasional. The Wooden Overcoats team are heading down to the island to start work on Season 3! We're looking forward to dropping in for a Chapman's ice cream cappuccino, talking toffee with the constabulary, and asking a certain author to fill us in on everything that's been going on since we left Antigone and Rudyard on the Piffling shoreline.
Wooden Overcoats Season 3 will comprise eight half hour episodes released from February 2018. That's the plan, anyway. To get from here to release we're going to have to Kickstart some funding again. Expect our Kickstarter in September.
Season 3 will only happen if we can raise the money to pay everyone so mark out September in your diaries and make sure you pledge early - day one if you can! (Early pledges help us kick off with a bang and get Kickstarter HQ to notice and talk us up to the rest of their followers).
Those of you who kindly contributed to our Season 2 Kickstarter will remember that concurrently with the fundraising, we released a mini-series called Piffling Lives. That's happening again but with a whole different mini-series which we'll be putting together in August!
None of this means that we're going to sit around and wait for after September to do some work on the main show. It takes a long time to put together a season of Wooden Overcoats which is why we've been meeting throughout the first half of the year to figure things out.
Our head writer David has now assembled his team and they are in the process of mapping out the shape of Season 3.
